Lucknow: A 53- year-old woman and her daughter, 27, tied the knot in the same ‘mandap’ in Gorakhpur in a mass marriage event held on Thursday under Mukhyamantri Samuhik Vivaah Yojna.
The woman, Beli Devi, whose husband had died 25 years ago, married her brother-in-law Jagdish (55). Her youngest daughter Indu also got married in the same ceremony, which had 63 other couples.
